Dear Library community,

I am happy to share with you a new policy brief on *Using Libraries To
Support National Literacy Efforts
<http://unesco.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=aebf51bce1587180e03069025&id=05e700909a&e=c6c31c4c86>*
 produced by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL).

The policy brief examines the role of libraries in supporting lifelong
literacy. It looks at how libraries nurture early literacy skills up to
advanced levels of literacy proficiency, and the need for libraries to be
involved in policy dialogue connected to literacy. The publication goes
further to highlight the fact that libraries at every level, local and
national, should be well-resourced to serve their surrounding communities
and users in order to create a successful learning environment.

The policy brief is a result of an international workshop
<http://unesco.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=aebf51bce1587180e03069025&id=029865cbf5&e=c6c31c4c86>
that was convened in April 2016 at UIL on ‘How Libraries Support National
Literacy Efforts’. It includes the following key policy recommendations:

   1. Involve libraries in the policy dialogue surrounding literacy and
   ensure that libraries are an integral part of local and national literacy
   strategies and efforts.
   2. Enable libraries to contribute to a literate environment that
   encourages everyone to develop, enhance and sustain literacy skills within
   a lifelong learning perspective.
   3. Ensure that libraries are inclusive and have the knowledge and
   resources to provide relevant literacy materials in a welcoming space for
   marginalized, vulnerable and minority language groups.
   4. Institutionalize professionalization and invest in ongoing training
   for all library staff.
   5. Use data provided by libraries for better informed policy-making and
   coordination of the various literacy efforts of different stakeholders.

French, Spanish and Arabic versions will be available soon.

Thank you for sharing the policy brief with your networks!

Best wishes,

Lisa Krolak
